Who is ready to really dig into April? I’m not *quite* ready, but I am so ready for the spring season to take flight so let’s kick today off with this week’s Simon Says Stamp & Show challenge: Fly. Visit the blog to see all of the other creations and to enter. This week’s prize (as always) is a $50 voucher to Simon Says Stamp! The winner is randomly drawn – you can enter by posting to your blog, flickr, or other site too. See the blog for entry details and rules as usual.
I can never start a notebook and leave it plain or decorated as-is. I only buy the cheapest of notebooks, then decorate them myself! Thinking about all the things I’d like to do, all of the projects, goals, and other things I hope will take flight this spring I was inspired to decorate this notebook for this week’s challenge. It really was fun and easy as well, here’s how.
1. Paint with gesso (to prime) cover. Then paint with blue + pink distress paints, allow to fully dry.
2. Use archival ink to stamp hearts onto background, as well as the bird.
3. Finish the book by adding distress stickles, letter stickers, and edging with both green and black ink.
I hope you’re inspired to join us – and that your creativity will take flight this week!
